The “Delightfully Cornish” Ring O Bells Inn
As seen on national television (prominently featured on ITV’s “Cornwall with Caroline Quentin)
PROPER JOB👍 The Ring of bells welcomes you from the moment you step of the main road in the front door (no joke). Service was friendly, efficient and helpful with good knowledge of menu. Food was excellently presented and tasted great. Plenty for your money as portions were not scrimped on. Loved it and hadn’t changed from the same cosy feel of over 30 years since I was last there. Thanks team for a lovely evening 👍☺ Walker Newmans
Found this place about 3 years ago, we visit this part of Cornwall twice a year and eat at the Ring o’ Bells most of the time, if you like good traditional fresh cooked food, then this is the place for you. A typical village pub with a very friendly atmosphere. Also dog friendly which for us is an added bonus! If in the area give it a try, you won’t regret it! Pamela Vardy
Lovely village pub. Great staff atmosphere and food. Shirley Parker
The Ring O Bells at St Issey, is located about two and a half miles south of the popular fishing port of Padstow and within easy travelling distance of some of the best sandy beaches in Cornwall (See: 7 Bays for 7 Days).
Here in the heart of the village stands our 17th Century Inn, nestled in picturesque rolling countryside with a small courtyard garden and intimate restaurant. The Ring O Bells is well known locally for serving really good quality home cooked fayre at ‘pub meal’ prices.
The perfect location
St Issey is ideally placed for anyone wishing to tour the North Cornwall coastline, with its rugged cliffs and beautiful sandy beaches.
Every year thousands of tourists visit the area, because of its great wealth of attractions, these include:
- Padstow with its pretty harbour and Rick Stein’s Seaview restaurant
- Harlyn Bay the famous surfers beach which is also perfect for bathers and walkers
- The long sweeping sands of Constantine Bay
- Trevone with its safe sandy beach and rocky outcrops harbouring a world of rockpools crabs and starfish
- The Camel Trail ever popular with cyclists and walkers that runs from Bodmin to Padstow
- The ruins of Tintagel Castle are just a short drive to the north
- Polzeath is an even shorter distance away and is considered to be amongst the best surfing beaches in the UK
There is something for everyone in North Cornwall and St Issey is just minutes away from the main Atlantic Highway, that runs all the way to North Devon.
“Traditional 17th century Cornish inn in small village setting, between Padstow and Wadebridge. Pork comes from proprietor’s own smallholding nearby and food is traditional pub grub at sensible prices. There are four rooms for overnight guests, including a family room, all at very low nightly rates, especially when compared to similar accommodation locally. Real ales include Betty Stoggs and other guest beers.”
